The controversy between Deontay Wilder and his trainer has been brewing since his defeat to Fury. The American heavyweight fired Breland with immediate effect after he threw in the towel. Since then, things have blown up.

Recently, Breland gave an interview and revealed the truth about training Deontay Wilder. He even said ‘Bronze Bomber’ is uncoachable. The ‘Bronze Bomber’ took to his Instagram account to reply to these claims. In the video, we see the former champion playing the piano accompanied by a cryptic caption.

With his caption, Wilder suggested he will not comment on the claims made by Breland. This will come as a surprise to fans, as Wilder has spent the last few months slating everyone involved in the Tyson Fury bout.

However, his silence could be the result of constant criticism that has come his way, ever since he posted the video accusing Fury.

Who is Deontay Wilder fighting next?

The former champion is yet to make a comeback after the defeat to ‘The Gypsy King’. Moreover, he is yet to appoint a replacement in place of Mark Breland. So when will he return, and who is he fighting next?

Rumors suggest that a bout against former IBF champion Charles Martin is in the works. The two have a history, and Martin has also welcomed the fight in recent interviews. Therefore, it could be the best match-up for Wilder.
